Title: Stadium Australia, Homebush NSW - Concrete Lower Tier Reconfiguration
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Stadium Australia (now renamed Telstra Stadium), was the centrepiece of the Sydney 2000 Olympic games. For the Olympics the design brief and bid to the IOC specified a stadium capacity of 110,000 spectators. The actual capacity was closer to 115,000. The structure is generally a reinforced or post-tensioned structure, and the facility to reconfigure after the initial purpose makes this stadium unique. The key feature is that, after the initial field shrinking, the Eastern and Western stand lower tiers can be brought forward to better accommodate spectators for the sports requiring a rectangular field. This paper specifically deals with Structural Systems works, related to the lower tier movements and systems utilised in reconfiguring Stadium Australia.
